am watching the live scene, surprising me is that eitheneither mitch mcconnell nor harry reid have gone to the podium to address reporters. i believe the vice president talking to reporters but they wouldn't have had some sort of public statement. is that a sign of trouble or something we should not read into? rich: they're starting for a formal statement just to make sure that what they have got here is something they can believe will pass the senate and can pass the house and congress and get its way to the white house. it is caution right now while there are leadership giving the okay on this deal, still have to make sure you have the votes. that is often what so many people forget about these negotiations. we hear from the president and the speaker, the two leaders ultimately became the vice president and a ignore the leader of the senate, you'v youe got to get the vote. he never specifically know how your caucus is going to react to what you are offering. adam: is there an option to stall this to tie it up? rich: usually at 11:30 p.m. on new year's eve, your colleagues will no

evening, most of the folks on capitol hill have gone home. harry reid has gone home for the evening as the focus of these talks is now between the vice president of the united states, joe biden and mitch mcconnell. a sign of optimism the last time they tried to work out a deal, it was successful. they extended the current tax rates for a couple of years and extended long term unemployment insurance and 2 percentage cut in social security. last time they got together it was successful between the two and now they are leading points on negotiation. >> if we don't get a deal before january 1, the taxes go up pretty high. any idea how much people will be paying? >> i think there is a misconception when you talk about the bush tax cuts which are the current rates we're operating under, it only hits folks at the top of the income scale, bush tax cutting all the way to the bottom, all the way up to the top. pretty much anybody who has an income is going to be paying more in taxes if there is not any type of deal to extend current rates. >> shifting gears, it has to do little with the fiscal c

reelected. and harry reid running the senate sms president obama. it will not look all that much different. there is a big election, mostly status quo election. two more democratic senators, if more democratic house members but those are pretty much changes in the margins. same as the old one. lori: somehow we sent the same jokers back to washington anyway. i don't know, we only have ourselves to blame. one thing i can give them credit for, they passed 237 bills into law compared to 385, 456 in the preceding two congresses, so maybe half of what was done. i would say less is more, so i give them credit for doing less. >> it is an interesting point. never thought the number of bills passed with a good indicator of anything. that is a quantitative not qualitative measure and th effet not much happened suggested people in the house would tell you because we did some things, the senate became a graveyard, people in the senate would soon stop bad things from happening. the beauty is in the eye of the beholder when it comes to quantity. more problems solved i don't think a lot of probl
